New American Religious Spirit
By Jim Searcy
Real true Christians are unpopular folks today. I mean
by that, anyone who takes SERIOUSLY biblical truth and biblical
principles, will find himself reviled. If we dare speak the truth in
the midst of today's national crisis, you will need boiler plate
America has all of a sudden gotten very
religious. Great ecumenical prayer meetings where all gods and all
faiths are welcome are in vogue. People who hadn't said "God,"
except in profanity, for years, are all of a sudden getting
The WTC 9-11 has turned things upside-down in many
ways. Woe to those who think this new religiosity is a reason for
rejoicing for Christians. You MUST understand that it most surely is
You may hear Christian hymns being sung, and church
attendance may be up. We better understand how even this is not
Why would I say such things? Because there is no such thing
as "partial Christianity". There is no Christianity that
does not speak of repentance from sin.
The new religious
spirit of America has two basic foundations: 1) There is one god,
unknown, who may be called by any religious names, who has revealed
absolutely nothing of objective value, regarding His will, regarding
worship, or human behavior. 2) This god has no wrath; knows nothing
of sin or judgment. Also anyone who dares to say that God would
punish a person, or a nation, is a glowing heretic to the new
American religious sprit.
Even though the pope fully approves the
two basic foundations. Even though the pope tells us Islam's god is
the same as the God of the Christians. Even if the pope kisses the
Koran. Even though the pope tells us to pray to Mary like he does.
The problem is easily seen: Christians believe, that there is one
true God, and not even the pope can say otherwise.
terrorizes the new American religious spirit controlled masses. Read
the first few verses of John 16. Just read down to Al Gores favorite
verse John 16:3. This war on terrorism is War on the Saints. Why?
Phil 1:28 And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to
them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that
God went to great lengths to explain and show the difference between
Himself from all the gods of the peoples and religions. God Almighty
makes it perfectly clear and proclaimed: He seeks true worship. True
worship is based upon a knowledge of who He really is. True worship
is based upon His revelation to man. He does not grant to man the
freedom to worship Him in a manner that pleases the creature rather
than the Creator. God is particular about His worship. His worship is
based absolutely upon truth that He revealed. Without truth, there is
no worship of the Christian God.
Truth revealed by the
Christian God is found in The KJV Holy Bible. The truth that the one
True God has revealed is without question, when it comes to the
matter of His law, sin, rebellion, punishment, wrath, and judgment.
can so called "evangelicals" be so quick to jump on the
American religious spirit bandwagon? Even so called "evangelicals"
say "we will never talk about sin, or punishment, or wrath."
The remnant is FEW who will cry out against this foolishness. Real
Christians cannot withhold the truth about sin and judgment, out of
fear of man's opinions. That is precisely what makes the Cross of
Jesus Christ of no effect. In the American religious spirit there is
no Cross. There is no sacrifice, where there is no sin. The religious
spirit has no offense that demands forgiveness, to be found through
His perfect sacrifice!
Not to speak of sin and judgment to
"win" a person over, is unfaithfulness to the gospel
itself! To what has such a person been won over? Where is the gospel
when there is no sin to be forgiven at Calvary?
But it is right
here that the new American religious spirit stops its ears and
refuses to hear.
America wants God's blessing. We want God to
be near us. We want Him to protect us from the horror. We want Him to
guide our military and allow us to flex our muscle and launch our
missiles with impunity. We want a blessing God, a caring God, who
simply panders to our wants and desires. We want a god to gratify our
lusts. This is the "God" of the American religious spirit.
But what America does not want is a God who is holy, who is just,
and who has revealed His will concerning how we, His creatures, are
to live. America is covered with the innocent blood of abortions. We
glory in violence. We are so selfish, so bound in covetousness,
greed, fornication, and sexual lust. The religious spirit of America
will rationalize the murder our own offspring.
candles with blood stained hands and selfish unrepentant hearts will
not move the One True Living Almighty God. Almighty God does not move
because political and religious hypocrites sing "God Bless
Here are some words of God we should HEAR from real
Christian men of God:
Phil 1:28 And in nothing terrified by
your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but
to you of salvation, and that of God.
Prov 1:23 Turn
you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will
make known my words unto you. Prov 1:24 Because I have called, and ye
refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; Prov 1:25
But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my
reproof: Prov 1:26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock
when your fear cometh; Prov 1:27 When your fear cometh as desolation,
and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish
cometh upon you. Prov 1:28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will
not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
Prov 1:29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear
of the LORD: Prov 1:30 They would none of my counsel: they despised
all my reproof. Prov 1:31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of
their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
religion of pseudo science, and vain philosophy, and evolution are
American government policy. There is no creator, we are told, to
express His law for us in the first place. That is the government
policy of the new American religious spirit. God and His law are not
allowed in courtrooms, our school rooms, or any public institution.
God's Royal Law is not even found in the Chruches, for we are under
grace, don't you know? If God says it is wrong, the new American
spirit in the government AND the churches celebrate it. Every form of
sexual perversion is found in the land. The mass media exalt
fornication and adultery. Homosexuality is not only turned into an
acceptable "lifestyle," it is made politically correct. It
is even blessed by the new American religious spirit. Sodomy is a
test for being properly "tolerant."
chapter 28 for the story of the American spirit, past, present, and
future, in just one chapter.
I don't know whether to cry or
scream. I MUST tell you that the time for national repentance is
PAST. I must tell you America is bound by the religious spirit.
People like Bush, who claim to be Christians, and stick a knife in
the back of Israel, is what will bring Romans 1:18 to pass in America
Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven
against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the
truth in unrighteousness;
I am to tell you that PERSONAL
repentance is all that is left. There will be no revivals. There will
be FEW to be saved.
I am to tell you that:
Isa 3:10 Say
ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall
eat the fruit of their doings. Isa 3:11 Woe unto the wicked! it shall
be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him. Isa
3:12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule
over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and
destroy the way of thy paths. Isa 3:13 The LORD standeth up to plead,
and standeth to judge the people.
I am to say it will be well for
the righteous. Are you righteous? By whose standards?
liberals may mock. I say, rage on and fill up your cup. The Bible
says their foot will slip in due time. Call me unpatriotic, ignorant,
and judgmental. I did not write the Bible, but I KNOW Who did. The
God, who cannot lie, in His Holy Bible, teaches these things are sins
which MUST, inevitably, bring God's judgment upon a people. I will
not suppress the truth of the Word of God. This is not a popularity
contest, this is the Great God Contest of all time and eternal life,
or eternal hell, hang in the balance of making the right choice.
Choose ye this day whom ye will serve. As for me and my house, we
will serve the Lord.
Shalom & Simcha,
when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be
not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but
the end is not by and by. --Luke 21:9
